Contemporary Lakeside Renovation
Our client had been living in her beautiful lakeside retreat for about 3 years. All around were stunning views of the lake and mountains, but the view from inside was minimal. It felt dark and closed off from the gorgeous waterfront mere feet away. She desired a bigger kitchen, natural light, and a contemporary look. Referred to JRP by a subcontractor, our client walked into the showroom one day, took one look at the modern kitchen in our design center, and was inspired for her own contemporary lakeside renovation!
After discussing the frustrations of dark spaces and limitations when entertaining groups of friends, the homeowner and the JRP design team emerged with a new vision. Two walls between the living room and kitchen would be eliminated. Structural revisions were needed for a common wall shared with a neighbor. With the wall removal and the addition of multiple slider doors, the main level now has an open layout.
Everything in the home went from dark to luminous as sunlight could now bounce off white walls to illuminate both spaces. We aimed to create a beautiful contemporary kitchen that fused the necessities of functional space with the elegant form of the contemporary aesthetic. The kitchen playfully mixes frameless white upper with horizontal grain oak lower cabinets and a fun diagonal white tile backsplash. Gorgeous grey Cambria quartz with white veining meets them both in the middle. The large island with an integrated barstool area makes it functional and a great entertaining space.
The master bedroom received a mini facelift as well. White never fails to give your bedroom a timeless look. The beautiful, bright marble shower shows what’s possible when mixing tile shape, size, and color. The marble mosaic tiles in the shower pan are especially bold when paired with black matte plumbing fixtures and give the shower a striking visual.
Layers, light, consistent intention, and fun! Paired with beautiful, unique designs and a personal touch created this beautiful contemporary lakeside renovation that does not go unnoticed.
